I would like to see more homework. I have come to understand that my sixth grader is in blocked classes where the direct instruction and application is provided during the school day. This is a WONDERFUL thing!
As I am in aspire officially for a semester and having the chance to experience main campus for the other semester I had very much disliked main campus. On the other hand aspire is a very small structured building holding few kids, giving opportunities to the gifted students that main campus could not withhold. In my favor I was accepted in the gifted program, otherwise I would have changed schools. Aspire itself is a great school
Everything that I would say about this school is positive. My son is 8th grader there and he likes Connolly better than any other school he attended in the past. As a parent, I am attending monthly Booster club meetings and people there are super nice. So, my rating for this school is excellent and five star.
